Best Festival

Gold Winner Halifax Pride

Silver Winner Halifax Busker Festival

Bronze Winner Halifax Jazz Festival

“Ingrained in our festival is the need to be extremely thoughtful and diverse in what we’re doing and how we’re doing it, says Halifax Pride executive director Adam Reid. “The needs of our community are incredibly broad, and their expectations when they come to the festival are really diverse. So we need to ensure we’re creating a festival that includes all parts of the queer community.” Which it does, putting in the work to be continually more accessible. “It’s never the wrong decision,” he adds, “removing a barrier for one community always seems to just make accessibility better for everyone.”
